Revlon Color Stay is my new friend!

If you read my nonsense blog, then you know that I tried Revlon Color Stay and hated it. Well, now I like it. :D Haha! After fighting with it for so long, I found a way to make it behave on my face!!! 

A few reasons why I hated it.

  1. It dries really fast and isn't very blendable
  2. My pores and fine lines were AWFUL!!
  3. Kinda cakey 
Now how I apply it.

  1. Tinted moisturizer!
  2. Primer
  3. Apply foundation with my fingers
  4. Stipple more foundation where I have redness
  5. Brush on powder
  6. Press a wet sponge all over my face
Ta da! The wet sponge is my secret weapon! It sets everything and makes it look like skin! No more cake face! I still have a problem with it on my nose though. It tends to kinda dry out and make it look like I have freckles... That's when I bust out my MAC and pat a little on my nose!

I really like my new foundation routine for every day! MAC is still my baby boo though.
The Revlon does make my face look a little bumpy though. =( I am still working on fixing that problem. You can see it more in this pic.
Let me know what your experience has been with the Revlon. Thanks so much!! :D

I love and have been using Revlon's colorstay for years. However, I just started using Revlon's Photoready foundation and I'm feeling the same way you did about colorstay the first time. BTW I'm Mara and I'm offically a follower now. Great Blog :)
